I Blame Lili – Booksigning and Sven

Because she mentioned Earth Wind and Fire this morning in her LJ entry and of course I had to go to Itunes and grab some. Right now I’m listening to my third go-round with Boogie Wonderland. I LOVE Earth Wind and Fire. My husband will curl his lip when he comes back from working out though, so I need to get my fill of it loud when he’s not here, LOL.

Dude, come on,15 band members, a full rhythm section, look at all the gold lame and lycra! I love them, so much. My dad got me hooked when I was a kid.

On to Sven –

This is from last night. I haven’t written today so I’ll give my full seven day Sven wrap up tomorrow as I do the bulk of my writing at night. But without today, I’m still up 10K for the last six days. I did just get edits for Wolf Unbound so I need to work on those and I’m told I’ll be getting edits on Celebration for the Dead by the 9th so those are coming soon too. Still, my edits on WU aren’t bad and I can finish those up in a day or so. I’ve thought on the one area I need to smooth out and have figured out what needs to happen so that’s good.

All in all, Sven has enabled me to keep focus on writing. I’ve been able to get some work done during the daytime lately, which gives me a break at night and I’m actually getting more SLEEP. Yay!

Last night’s book signing was very fun. First of all I got to meet Kate Davies and Stacia Wolf – both of whom are wonderful! Not an exceptionally busy signing for me but it was still fun to get out and Beth, the manager at that particular Waldenbooks is just fabulous. Stacia and Kate both took pictures (because I left the camera at home like a doofus) so I’m hoping they’ll take pity on me and send some my way so I can put them up here.

I grabbed their anthology The Perfect Gift and Kate’s Tease Me, Please Me and I can’t wait to read them! Sadly, they weren’t able to get Chased in but I’m hoping to do another signing next year so hopefully they’ll get it that time.

    I had a blast! Thanks for inviting me. I’ll send e-copies of the pics as soon as I figure out which wire in the tangle on my computer desk attaches to the camera…

    Have a great week!
